Is this a bad seed to be feeding? The person we got him from had him on a seed from Fred's dollar store and I wanted to change it but this is the only brand available at the nearest petstore near our house.

I have no knowledge about the brand of seed you listed.

You can buy good brands of budgie seed on-line.
Two highly recommended brands are Volkmans and Dr. Harveys

Amazon.com : Volkman Avian Science Parakeet Bird Seed 4 Lb : Pet Food : Pet Supplies Amazon.com : Volkman Avian Science Parakeet Bird Seed 4 Lb : Pet Food : Pet Supplies

Amazon.com: Dr. Harvey's Our Best Parakeet Blend Natural Food for Parakeets, 4-Pound Bag: Pet Supplies Amazon.com: Dr. Harvey's Our Best Parakeet Blend Natural Food for Parakeets, 4-Pound Bag: Pet Supplies


Additionally, I would recommend you take a look at the information in this link which explains in detail what an excellent diet for Fred would be.

Never used it but I do see that brand in a lot of the pet stores in my area, so it must get used by people. Guess it is no worse than the dollar store seed he was eating. Have you checked out our diet and nutrition section sticky's ? You can get a lot of good info/advice there on getting your bird going on a very healthy diet...

Hi.. Is this the seed you are referring to? It has only 3 reviews on Amazon, but they are all 5 stars!!

Thanks for linking that, Judy!
I don't know why it didn't occur to me to do a search for it.

Looks like one I might try for my flock.. Keep us posted if it works well for you... like.. do they like it? do you see any difference in your bird?... feathers seem healthier, birds livelier, etc??
I'd appreciate it.. Thanks...
PS... The brands Faerybee linked are ones I use or have used... they are both just great. I also now use All Living Things Parakeet food from Pet Smart.

I will let you all know. It's only day 2 of him being in our house so he actually hasn't eaten anything except his millet spray. Hopefully he settles in and starts enjoying his seed soon. =) Thanks everyone!
